Full description

John Burmester and his partner Henry Nash founded the brand in 1750, way before the Douro Region was declared as demarcated but always with Porto and the Douro in mind. Since then, the brand has been producing quality Port Wines combining tradition, knowledge and passion with a modern vision.

On this visit to the wine cellars, the guide will explain everything about the Burmester brand, from its roots to the current and future projects. You will also learn about the production of Port Wine, covering every step from the selection of the best grapes, to the bottling process and aging time depending on the desired variety of wine.

To complete the visit, you will taste two different port wines and learn how to notice their differences.

köstlich =p
Die Tour dauert ca. 30 Minuten und wird auf Englisch angeboten. Unser Reiseleiter war ausgezeichnet und informativ. Ich habe die Hafenverkostungstour wirklich genossen.

Great value
The tour and explanation do not take place in a large group, but was with us with 2 couples, making the visit more personal. A focused and clear explanation, enough time to ask questions and take pictures. Afterward, a tasting all this for a pleasant price.

Porto wIne
This cellar is very interesting to visit, with a guided tour that explains very well the types of Port wine and the particularities of growing grapes in the Douro valley region. At the end of the visit we had a tasting with two wines. A tawny and a ruby.

very interestign
It's worth the visit, they're well organized and I had the opportunity to make an almost private visit in the day because the group was very small. I used a 5% discount code that was given to me by Living Tours. On holidays the whole discount is good. I recommend Living Tours and the Burmester Cellars
